Tim Bradley: Pacquiao Has To Knock Me Out To Get 50-50

By Osman Rodriguez

Undefeated Timothy Bradley appeared on WLIE radio in New York and says Manny Pacquiao will have to do something spectacular in their fight to stay on pace with Floyd Mayweather Jr., who recently had an impressive performance on May 5th against Miguel Cotto. Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) challenges Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

After struggling to win a majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in November, some fans are questioning whether Manny Pacquiao is still the same fighter. In order to prove the doubters wrong, and make a case for getting a 50-50 monetary split with Mayweather - Bradley believes Pacquiao has to win their fight with a knockout. Bradley doesn't expect that to happens. He plans to shock the boxing world in June.

"He's getting ready for one of the biggest fights of his life. This guy has to knock me out. He has to knock me out or else the fans are not going to let him off the hook this time. He has to definitely do something spectacular. The Floyd fight [with Cotto] was entertaining. He's definitely going to have to do something to be more spectacular than the Floyd fight if he wants to negotiate 50-50 with Floyd Mayweather," Bradley said.

[QUOTE=JoeMan;12134609]Dude, you don't talk about what makes sense or not if you're supportive of a guy who has been dumping roadblocks into this fight. It gives the impression that you don't want the fight to happen. Even your dog can…

[QUOTE=JoeMan;12134475]I just want to see the Khan/May fight. That's all I want, man. I'm not hating on Floyd. Hate is a self-inflicted, useless emotion people should not go through everyday of their lives. You guys should see more of Dr…
